Web 2.0 and the Enterprise: Strategies to Maximize New Opportunities towards Web 3.0

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/94b96d/web_2_0_and_the_en) has announced the addition of the "Web 2.0 and the Enterprise: Strategies to Maximize New Opportunities towards Web 3.0" report to their offering.

Web 2.0 and The Enterprise is a new report that examines how the underlying concepts behind Web 2.0 and the technologies and services it enables are filtering into the corporate world.

While there is much debate in the industry about the nature of Web 2.0 and an exact definition of the term, there is no denying that the services and technologies it has engendered are becoming deeply entrenched in the consumer world. Internet-savvy consumers especially those aged 18-34 are as comfortable with social networking, blogging and twittering as they are with using the phone or writing an email.
